Design a t-shirt to be shown on the catwalk during London Fashion Week.

'Your Label', the BBC Blast project which gives a group of young people the chance to design their own collection and show it on the catwalk during London Fashion Week, is back for its second year.

The team have been selected and they've started to design their range under the brand name 1Wo/Man.

Watch the latest webisode.

Alongside their collection they'll be showing a 'diffusion' range of t-shirts to complement their designs. The shirts will be professionally printed, sold in aid of Children in Need and featured in the catwalk show.

They want you to design the t-shirt collection.

The team have produced moodboards and a statement about the collection to inspire your designs but it's up to you to interpret the themes in any way you wish.

The winning 12 designs chosen by the Your Label team will be the ones which they feel show the most originality and artistic flair, best compliment the moodboards, and combine with other chosen designs to form a cohesive range.

The Prize:

You will receive invitations to the catwalk show in London for you and a guest to see your t-shirt on the catwalk and you'll get a professionally printed t-shirt bearing your design from the collection. We will pay your reasonable travel expenses to come and see the show.

How To Enter:

  • Using the moodboards as inspiration, design a graphic for a t-shirt on A4 paper using no more than three colours.
  • Scan or photograph your design and upload it to BBC Blast tagging it 'your label design'.
  • Send by post with details of name, age and email address to: 'Your Label T-shirt competition', BBC Blast Online, MC3 D2, 201 Wood Lane, London W12 7TS. Proof of posting will not be taken as proof of entry.
